The Typewriter Database 1950 Olympia Progress Serial # 654556 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Uwe Wachtendorf: 1950 Olympia Progress Serial # 654556 I would have rather listed this as an Optima instead given it was most likely manufactured in Erfurt after the Olympia relocation to Wilhelmshaven. I have previously raised the question of having the Progress and Simplex models included in the Optima serial number list http://typewriterdatabase.com/1949-olympia-progress.6878.typewriter , but given there wasn't a reply to the idea I'll list this Progress under 'Olympia'.
